    Fine Art Photography SIG 

    Several members of the GVR Camera Club have been showing breathtaking artistic photographs that have been eliciting "aaws" from every audience that they've been shown to. For examples of the photos that can be produced with these techniques, click HERE.

    I've had numerous requests from members who want to create similar Art Photographs, to offer classes on the techniques used.

    In order to satisfy those requests, the GVR Camera Club is launching a new Special Interest Group (SIG) for members who want to "Click it up a Notch" to a photo art form. Sandy Ostroff will be the facilitator for this group.

    Any member who is interested in "Photography as an Art Form" is invited to attend. Join the group to explore new ideas and to get excited about photography again.

    Please feel free to bring a few samples of any Photo Art that you've done to share as examples

    Tuesdays @ 9:30AM

    Please bring up to 5 photos that you have either worked on and feel are ready for printing or display OR that you want specific help with.  The purpose of our discussions is to help members become more knowledgeable about  the taking and post processing of their photos.  Please try to bring the Exif data available for your photos (if possible).  Our discussions are  "Creative Criticism" sessions so we can learn from each other how to make all of our photos "BETTER"!!   With more members returning every day, we wish to make this a productive group, so our members can grow in the field of photography! 

    In order to participate in this event, you must be a member of the GVR Camera Club and GVR.

    Mondays @ 9:30AM

    The Black & White Special Interest Group is a weekly meeting of those club members who enjoy the special qualities of black & white (or more generally called “monochrome”) photography. Members bring their images for viewing and comments by the group.  Discussions on editing techniques, as well as on composition and lighting are also a part of the meeting.
    The question might be asked “Why are we interested in black and white images when even the basic point and shoot digital cameras can produce very good color photographs?”  The answer is: there are some images which have more visual impact when rendered in black and white.  These images are those which use the interplay between light and shadows to emphasize texture or shapes within the composition. An example is shown below
    Typically, the photographs shown at our SIG have been produced as color images in a digital camera and converted to black and white using one or more of the popular photo editing software packages.
